In honor of Sonic's Birthday and the announcement of his bizzare new game
, I'd like to share a weird classic remake that never made it to market: The Sega CD 32X version of Sonic 2 called Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Special Edition. This was one of only six games created specially for the horrible system that required the unholy combination of a Genesis, 32x, and a Sega CD adapter. At first, it seems pretty similar to regular Sonic 2, but there are several design changes that were made to take advantage of the new horsepower. Also be aware that the game is in an unfinished state. I'll be playing one zone at a time. There's not really too much need to go into nooks and crannies as Trin has Sonic 2 pretty much covered in his thread
. Also pardon the mumbly delivery I'm southern and I'm sick right now with a summer cold. It'll get better later on.

So, here I am, minding my own business, when this comes along. I really wouldn't call this an lp, first off. I spent a good hour watching it in absolute shock before I figured that out. If I had to put a name on it, it would be an lp parody. If you watch a lot of lp's, or play a lot of video games, then this is for you. If you're looking for an actual game in here someplace, or for the video to slow down so that your brain can catch up, you'll be let down. Just sit back, relax, and try to hold on. This is something that comes along once in a great while.
